Default OS Speed = Slow

I don't know about you but I bought the OS Speed - Worlds edition due to the hype in all the forums and it cannot keep up with the RBC6's or the Mugen Ninja's at my track, I get eaten up down the straightaway.

Before you ask I run a 808 buggy with a full titanium screw kit and it is one of the lightest buggies at the club, if I lean the OS off anymore it will explode and I have also tried different gear ratio's.

The RB's get over 10minutes and the Ninja's get just over ten minutes, I cannot get anymore than 9 minutes and I am a smooth driver.

OS = hype!!!!

p.s. I borrowed a friends RBC6 and I was able to run with the big boys down the straight, I could make 10mins and my lap times were almost a second quicker!!!!

huh what you need is a os rocket or xtm 24.7 colling head for that motor then you can lean it out. the hara edition with the holes in the head make it not have enough material to cool properly. if you dont want it though i might have a buyer for it

You got a lemon! happens all the time with the low-quality mass produced Chinese made OS engines..Send it out to Brian at Pro Twister Mods, he will figure out whats wrong with it and fix it for you..Then it will be fine, you will get your 3-7 gallons through it, and never buy another OS Piece of S#@T again....for all you OS lovers, My apologies, but OS engines have 1 lemon out of every 4, and I am tired of it, and tired of seeing people get ripped off, and then told to go away when they call OS for help

This dude is just trying to bust balls. At this fantasy track only a rb c6's and and Ninja's can win. If it was real the person would be looking to learn how to make the engine run at the front of the pack.

A properly piped C6 I could see outrunning a OS Speed on the topside...i think the Speed may have a tiny bit more punch out of the corners but a C6 does have a great top end if its setup correctly... .

I didn't say anything about winning, I just said the RB's and the Ninja's are quicker than my speed down the straightaway. I have tried the 6mm, 7mm and 8mm carb inserts and for reference my friends RB runs a 7mm. The OS is a good motor it is just not as good as the hype suggests on the forums, the fuel economy, top speed and power is all hype.

I actually came second in one race and put the Mugen on the podium for the other 3 but I cannot run with the RB's down the straight they are quicker and out pull my Speed.

p.s. I run and OS2060 pipe and use P4 plugs with Odonnell 30%, I have also tried a 2050.
